The 1943 doubled die obverse 1
(DDO 1) is the strongest class VI
doubled die.  Class VI doubling is
known as "Distended Hub
Doubling".   Extra thickness can
be seen primarily on the date and
LIBERTY.  The extra thickness can
be seen easily on the tail of the 9
of the date.

This variety is listed in the
Cherrypickers Guide.  The fact
that this is a steel cent, adds to its
popularity and value.
